    Screen resolution out of whack

    I bought a new tablet, with insanely high resolution. Now, when I connect (RDP) to my desktop which has much less resolution, the RDP session is real tiny and I can't read anything on the screen.
    How can I make the RDP session readable?

    There's a Remote Desktop Connection Manager that you can download and you can set Remote Desktop resolutions in there, which should make it much more viewable.

    Download Remote Desktop Connection Manager from Official Microsoft Download Center

    Dis connect your monitor from your pc. Then refresh your RDP session.

I want to change my resolution to my native screen resolution (1680x1050 60hz) but I don't have that option. instead I have to choose from 800x600, 1024x728, 1280x1024, 1600x1200, and 1920x1440 (at 64hz). How do I change it to my native screen resolution if I don't have the options there?
